With the upcoming football season on the horizon and recent changes to the Oregon Ducks, fans should anticipate an exciting year of football.
As July comes to an end fans are getting excited about the upcoming football season. The Oregon Ducks will kickoff on September 3rd against the Georgia Bulldogs. The game which will take place in Atlanta is officially sold out. This game will be exhilarating for fans because Oregon and Georgia don’t have the chance to face off very often. It should also be an interesting game for new head coach Dan Lanning because he spent four years at the University of Georgia with current head coach Kirby Smart. With both teams coming off a great 2021 season, this game should be a great way to kick off the fall semester.
The Oregon Ducks have also made a lot of new additions to their team this year including head coach Dan Lanning. Fans and players are excited to see what the season holds with a new head coach. Fans were able to get a glimpse of what the season might look like with a Lanning after he coached the spring football game on April 23rd. The game had Autzen packed with fans and not only debuted Lanning but also gave recent Auburn transfer Bo Nix the chance to show the Ducks his impressive skills on the field. The team has also had some very impressive commits including Dante Moore, Caleb Pressley and Dante Dowdell. All these players were highly sought after by other Division I colleges and will be great additions to the Oregon Ducks. On top of new players and coaches, the Ducks also have plans to build a brand-new indoor practice facility. This multi-million-dollar project should be finished by 2024 and will be an exciting addition for the Ducks.
With the team seemingly in for an impressive season, they are also facing challenges. After the tragic loss of tight end Spencer Webb, the Ducks will have to come together in order to carry on Webb’s legacy. Webb will be missed dearly by the Oregon Ducks and fans. Another challenge that is seemingly looming over the Ducks’ head is how the departure of USC and UCLA from the Pac-12 will impact the Ducks. With this recent news, it looks like the college football conferences will see a lot of change in the upcoming years, and fans are unsure what it might mean for the Oregon Ducks. With fall football camp on the horizon, the Ducks have obstacles to overcome however the 2022 season should be good for the Ducks.
